Ontario Landlords Review – The Ontario Landlords Association is Excellent, A+, and Helps Landlords!

Landlords be careful, as people who don’t want landlords to succeed or want to make large sums of money from landlords don’t want small residential landlords to network, share advice, and help each other succeed.

After all, if Ontario landlords network, share advice, help each other and use important tenant screening tools like those offered by the Ontario Landlords Association they won’t need to hire lawyers or paralegals and won’t have to go to the Landlord and Tenant Board.

You won’t need to seek landlord solutions when you rent to great tenants and don’t have any problems.

In Part 1 we discussed why despite the Ontario Landlords Association being an incredibly helpful site for residential landlords there are a couple of negative reviews out there.

In this post we will look at some of the motivations the trolls have.

Why The Ontario Landlords Association Helps Landlords

The Ontario Landlords Association has revolutionized the landlord industry in Ontario.

Not that long ago small landlords with questions or challenges had few places to go.

Of course there were a few sites out there.  However, they were often run by non-landlords. 

For example, real estate agents in Waterloo who created a Waterloo landlord association but seemed to be more focused only on encouraging you to buy rental properties.

Then there were a couple corporate sites. These were run by people on salaries who were not small residential landlords relying on the success of their rental properties to pay for groceries (and to survive).

These sites are created by the large apartment developers who are also lobby groups to the provincial government.

There was a lack of information for Ontario landlords and in the rest of the country as well.  Canada landlords had no where to find helpful information.

Why Do Some People and Groups Want to See Small Landlords Fail?

There are lots of groups who want to see small landlords fail or at least profit on the problems and challenges small landlords face.

Let’s take a quick look at some of them:

1. Corporate landlords

Corporate landlords have low vacancy rates and even if a few tenants manipulate the Landlord and Tenant Board it doesn’t mean life or death for their business when you have hundreds of rental units.

The problem is small landlords. Small landlords are their competition for tenants.

Corporate landlords don’t want small residential landlords to succeed because we are their competition.

2. Landlord Representatives

Landlord representatives make money by representing small landlords who are in trouble. The more trouble small landlords have the more clients and more money these representatives make.

If small landlords know the rules and laws they don’t have to hire expensive paralegals or lawyers.

This makes some paralegals and lawyers extremely unhappy. 

Of course, not all of them.  There are some terrific legal representatives out there to assist landlords who really need help.

3. Property Managers

Property managers earn money from landlords who don’t want to look after their properties themselves.

The Ontario Landlords Association teaches individual landlords how to manage their own properties.

By learning how to manage their own properties, small landlords don’t have to hire property managers.

This makes property management companies very angry because they are going to lose customers/money.

4. Failed Landlords

Let’s face it. There are lots of residential landlords who have lost a lot of money and have failed.

They didn’t get any help when they were landlords and are unhappy current landlords have such new and helpful resources such as the Ontario Landlords Association.

5. Competitors

Lots of the biggest trolls see one group becoming very successful and get very jealous.

Some of the biggest trolls of the Ontario Landlords Association were people who had no interest in actually helping landlords but wanted to try to copy the organization….while criticizing it at the same time.

Ontario Landlords Association Review

The Ontario Landlords Association is an incredible success.

Run by successful landlords to help other landlords, the OLA has incredible partners such as Equifax to help landlords succeed.

The Ontario Landlords Association is recognized as an important voice for landlord by the Ontario government and the CMHC (Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation).

A Real Review Of the Ontario Landlords Association is that it is a helpful resource for landlords and offers landlords affordable tools for success!
